I believe you are right that Comeau is correct. However, I would prefer
not to pass by value in case the functor is of not trivial size, so wonder
if an overload would be appropriate:

    template <class Predicate>
    unary_negate<Predicate> not1(const Predicate &pred)
        // ... as now

    // new
    template <class Predicate>
    unary_negate<Predicate> not1(Predicate &pred)
        return unary_negate<Predicate>(pred);

What does Comeau make of this? BCC5.5 and GCC 2.95.2 seem to be happy
that it doesn't introduce any ambiguity.
